R. Schwarz

Hi, my name is Rachel Schwarz (2017), I’m from outside Philadelphia, and I’m currently pursuing a double major in International Studies and Humanitarian Affairs. I’ll be spending this year abroad, first in Central America on a traveling program through Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, studying social change, peace, and justice. During the Spring semester, I’ll travel to South Africa on Fordham’s Ubuntu program and study poverty development while participating in direct service. A huge advantage to the Honors Program is this freedom to create a year-long study abroad program. While at Fordham I have enjoyed participating in Generation Citizen, an incredible nonprofit aimed at bringing action civics back into high schools, Lincoln Center Society, and Global Outreach.
